So, how is it?  Would really appreciate a bit of a write-up!

 

There is a very similar car on BaT right now that I am tempted to bid on.

I took delivery of the car they day before flying to Asia for two weeks. Heading back this afternoon.

I only got to driver it about 3-4 miles in LA traffic. I did get to open it up a couple times. The thing is lightning fast. Power band is very usable with power being delivered in a brutal, but linear fashion. It likes to rev, and turbos are responsive. The car is fast as fuck. Putting aside off the line traction and manual shifting, it’s definitely faster than a stock NISMO in a straight line. Car similarly fast to my tuned NISMO w/ larger injectors.

The two most pronounced elements I could feel right away were “light” and “rigid”. The suspension is less punishing than Mizuno era GTR, but the chassis felt more rigid.

The engine note is fairly quiet, which doesn’t bother me. There’s flywheel rattle, and some clunky noise from the drivetrain (normal for Metzger). Reminds very much of the GTR in that way.

It’s a beautiful car. Red in my opinion is the best color. Really makes it stand out, and complements the CF so well. When you see it, get in it, drive it, you can tell it’s truly special.

Here’s a playlist I created of GT2 RS content. It’s very hard to find. Not much info on the car. There’s a three or four part interview with AP where he describes the car in detail. Gives the most perspective on how much development went in to the car.

I will report back with additional details after driving it some more this weekend.
